Woodland Park Reviews
Woodland is the bottleneck of Highway 24 heading east and west from Divide to Manitou Springs. Traffic is horrible during tourist seasons and progressively causes 30 minute to 2 hour delays every day of the week. This is the only way through the mountain pass that doesn't send Colorado Springs traffic through Canon City or through Bailey. Gas prices are very high, parking is extremely limited, and its a slow drive through constant red lights only a couple blocks apart. This is not the place you want to find yourself in a hurry; a glorified gas station with a retirement community surrounding limited resources for the elderly and the youth. The construction of the single roadway splits the town on both sides of Hwy 24 forcing people to have to drive through the town in order to get further along the way to 67, teller 1 and 285. Its an unecessary stop for the majority of travelers and a dangerous drive during the winter. I would not recommend this place to anyone.
We love everything about this little town. The beautiful views, fresh air and friendly people. Absolutely beautiful!
Woodland Park is a generally calm and safe area. It does lack instances of entertainment for children, and funding for public projects has been cut recently. However, the various stores offer the needed supplies for good cooking, and the town is supplied with various restaurants to go on a daily basis, should one bore of home cooking. Sidewalks line the streets, creating safe walkways for both children, adults, and dogs of any size.
